Summary:A guide to the best way to incorporate tools and processes in successful projects. We will discuss how participants currently manage tools and processes, and we will briefly look at some tools and processes used today.
Description and program
This is the second webinar in a series of six 75 minute instructor-led modules to give Localisation professionals an overview of a simple effective process for managing projects successfully. The webinar series is designed for people whose job it is to manage localisation projects so that schedule, quality and cost goals are achieved. The focus is on simple messages and techniques so that participants can improve their project management performance as soon as they return to the workplace.

What is it about?
The content of the first module is outlined below. The instructor will present each module in 45 – 60 minutes, illustrating the points with examples from his experience. Questions can be addressed during the module. At the end of each module a general Q&A will be held, lasting for 15 to 30 minutes.

Module 2. Process and Tools

This module deals with the use of tools, and the importance of understanding the process by which the project will be carried out. We will discuss how participants currently manage tools and processes, and we will briefly look at some tools and processes used today. However, this is not a technical discussion about tools. It is a guide to the best way to incorporate tools and processes in successful projects. The key topics covered are:

• What process does your company use?
• What tools can you use?
• What tools “should” you use?
• Examples of typical tools used, advantages and issues.
• Lessons Learned*

What will I get out of it?

Participants will get an outline of a simple effective framework to help them manage projects more successfully.
The sessions are run in a highly interactive manner. Participants are encouraged to ask questions during the workshop. However not all questions can be dealt with fully in the time permitted, and sometimes participants only think of questions and issues after the event is over. Therefore, participants can email the instructor up to 12 months after the webinar date with questions and requests.

What’s included?

• A copy of the powerpoint slides will be provided to remind participants of the key points and lessons learned.
• Participants will have free unlimited access to the session video recording.
• Certificates of attendance will be issued.
